02-Sep-04 | Hurricase Frances on approach

Processing operations for the next Delta launches, NAVSTAR IIR-13 and NASA’s Swift, have been put on hold in anticipation of Hurricane Frances, which is expected to make landfall south of Cape Canaveral some time on Saturday, 4 September. Cape Canaveral Air Force Station and Kennedy Space Center were closed to personnel of Thursday, and much of the surrounding area is being evacuated. At Hangar AE, Swift has been bundled in a double protective bag and has been sealed inside its transport canister for good measure.

Here’s wishing friends, the Delta team, the Space Coast, and everyone in the path of Frances — Godspeed and safe passage.
